    The look on the faces of the other performers on stage with him says it all. Ben is really on another plane musically. And one of the things I dig about him is that all those techniques he uses which I sometimes find gimmicky in some other players are all so tastefully done to the service of the essence of the tunes he's playing. He's mesmerizing.

    I love that the youtube video is titled "Cashmere"!

    and I love how much fun he seems to be having playing music, he's featured on a great episode of No Guitar is Safe that is worth a listen..

    His covers of Tom Sawyer, Billie Jean, and Hey 19 are great also.

    Very cool!
    Thanks for sharing.

    I actually like this version better than LZs. Yeah, heresy, I know.
    I’ve just never been a big fan of the song.

    Almost worth watching just for the faces he pulls. Quality bit of playing.

    Ben has been a fixture of our local music scene for yrs.
    He seems content with such, but i feel that he deserves
    a much broader audience. You have to go to where
    things happen... :cool:

    I don't generally go in for a lot of plank spanking (or box knocking, I guess, for our acoustic friends.) But, damn, that was great. I don't think I've seen very many other people who are so obviously and clearly enjoying making music. The little grin & sidelong glances at the fretboard were priceless.
